Here & Now | April 2017 Link-Up

It's quite amazing what can be packed into a month, which is why I love Here & Now - it's such an easy way of checking in and keeping track of things, documenting the little moments that go together to make up the year.
Last month the weather was still decidedly summery, and I was preparing to attend my first market in many years. Fast forward to now and it's cold, blustery and on the weekend I attended a second market.

Welcome to this month's Here & Now - I hope you'll take a few moments to document your own happenings either on your blog or on Instagram! The guidelines for doing both are at the bottom of this post.

 Loving // Cool weather at last that means I can pick up my wool and needles and knit at any time of the day. Bliss!
Eating // Grainy sourdough bread, shaped in a new banneton that produces a lovely cob-shaped loaf
Drinking // Lots of tea, sometimes just English Breakfast and other times this yummy blend
Feeling // Ready to face this week with more organisation than I did last week
Making // A woolly gift that I can't share as it might be seen here, and slow progress on my vintage cardigan as I'm giving my attention to a new pattern. I've also made up some more limited edition yarn packs, this time Easter inspired. (The one pictured above is Easter Eggs).
Thinking // Lots of woolly, yarny thoughts, mostly because of my yarn shop but partly because of this lovely weather
Dreaming // Of having sheep once again

  1. There seems to be a very woolly theme to this post Sarah! I am enjoying the cool weather and lots of tea too...
    Your cob shaped loaf looks pretty amazing!

    1. There does, doesn't there? Rather obvious what's on my mind :-) Thanks so much for joining in!

  2. Such beautiful wool colours in that basket, are the flowers wallflowers?

    1. Thanks Julie! The flowers are Winter Tarragon, it's a perennial :-)

  3. Sounds like a lovely month, it is still fairly warm in Perth, but we have had our cooler days... I can't wait for winter!

    1. I hope autumn settles in for you properly soon! It's not much fun when summer over stays it's welcome :-)

  4. Looking delicious as always, Sarah! Your tarragon in that light is gorgeous and those Easter yarn colours so sweet! Such a lovely Here & Now. :)

  5. Those tarragon flowers are just gorgeous, Sarah, as are those woolly colours. Isn't it wonderful that Autumn is here now! Meg:)

    1. Thank-you! I always admire the tarragon, such a pretty hardy plant. And it's most certainly wonderful that Autumn is here, the best time of year :-)

  6. Such a lovely post. Autumn is the best time of year, isn't it? Enjoy your woolly-ing!
